College prepares for its first open event of 2022


Telford College is opening the campus doors next week for its first face-to-face open event of 2022.

The Haybridge campus in Wellington – Shropshire’s largest further education centre – will be holding advice sessions and fact-finding tours between 5pm and 7.30pm on Wednesday, January 19.

There are several courses starting in January, including HND and HNC business, plus courses in accounting, health and social care, adults maths and English, HGV driving, and CIPD human resources. See

Graham Guest, Telford College principal and chief executive, said: “It is important that people get the chance to receive impartial careers advice, and see first-hand the industry-standard facilities which are here on their doorstep.

“We are putting stringent health and safety procedures in place to ensure that the event can go ahead in line with all the latest Covid-19 guidelines.”

The open event is a chance for prospective students and their families to see the university-standard facilities at the college.

They include a media hub and music studios, £3.5 million automotive centre and workshops, on-site hair and beauty salon and catering kitchens, and the £3 million Discovery Centre for aviation and engineering courses.

Tours will also be available around the college’s 7th Form A level centre, plus the construction zone, sport and public uniformed services training facilities, and study centres for business, computing and apprenticeships.

Mr Guest said: “We have a dynamic new curriculum and course guide which has been designed in close partnership with local employers.

“We are proud that our results place us in the top 10% of the UK’s education providers, with 99% of our A level students receiving offers from their first-choice university.

“The open event is the perfect opportunity to speak to students, and our expert staff, about the courses on offer, and college life.”

The college’s student hub will also be open for information about grants, transport, and other support on offer to students.
